Visit Worldwide Topsites

Wilhelm and Montanari craters flooded by darkness.

This area south of the Moon, east of the crater Tycho (85 km), is almost conquered the darkness. Most "affected" crters are Wilhelm (107 km) and Montanari (77 km). To these, the interiors are in total darkness. At both are observed only the outer edges. Wilhelm D is close to the eastern edge of Wilhelm (pictured on the west side because the images are upside down).
